• Our teacher said we have to memorize the first part of Marc Antony’s oration from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar:“Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
“The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with Caesar. The noble Brutus
Hath told you Caesar was ambitious:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath Caesar answer’d it.
“Here, under leave of Brutus and the rest—
For Brutus is an honourable man;
So are they all, all honourable men—
Come I to speak in Caesar's funeral.”
